What’s In Your Toolbox?

Every once in a great while we do a slightly different style of blog post. Okay…to be clear, you guys know that I write these posts. It’s not really a “we” thing.  “We” actually do all the work on the house together. “We” have an equal say in all things pertaining to the house. But

Tuesday Tidbits

Another week and So. Much. Progress. for this Tuesday Tidbits post! I’ll just get right into it, because there is a lot this week. The upstairs guest suite has everything done except the shower glass install (leaned up against the wall) and carpet. Otherwise it is done! All touch-ups, lights, etc! Funny story about the

Tuesday Tidbits Part 1

We have so many updates this week that I am doing a two part Tuesday Tidbits. The second portion will be tomorrow (on Wednesday) …obviously not being on a Tuesday…but there is just too much! So, let’s get down to business: I have spent every spare minute of each day scraping, sanding, priming and painting

Tuesday Tidbits

AHHHH….it has been another busy and productive week at our house! Lots of pics for this Tuesday Tidbits post to show some of our updates. Trent has been continuing to work on the bathrooms.

Ahhh…another busy week at our house! This Tuesday Tidbits is full of updates that are (thankfully) a little more exciting.

It has been another super busy week! Our Tuesday Tidbits could seriously have 100 photos and updates this week – but I won’t bore you. Plus, I think it would take me an entire day to sort and download them all. Here are the week’s highlights: Since Trent was able to build the 2 crazy

It’s time for another Tuesday Tidbits! We have been busy this week continuing to hang light fixtures. It feels like we are only half way through this particular project. But admittedly, the fixtures are enjoyable because of the instant change we can see. At the last minute, I realized there were a couple of corners

Another Project Couple

Almost one year ago, I showed a photo of this house in Buchanan here on our blog. This home is literally 1,000 ft from our home and I sold it to some friends, Joe and Tracy. Their plan was to take this vacant, bank-owned shell and turn it back into a beautiful home. Because this

Tuesday Tidbits

The past week has been BUSY at the house. All sorts of busy! Thankfully, that always makes for a more interesting Tuesday Tidbits blog post. I’ve listed off what we worked on this week bullet point style and of course included the photos. All nail holes on the second floor trim, windows and door casing have

Friday Favorites

Last week we brought out one of our favorite photographers and had him work his magic on our house. Due to the nature of our project, his beautiful photos were out of date almost immediately (we work fast). But, I still have to share them with you…because they are so good! We promise to bring him
